Physiometrix

The team developed a biosensor that can provide real-time muscular analytics to coaches, professional trainers and gym users. The device is sensor-embedded and fits to the contour of the user’s body. It notifies the user when he or she is approaching a critical muscular diagnosis after each training or workout. It would allow potential customers to receive muscle analytics which would improve their workout efficiency and prevent them from acquiring an injury.

What’s Going On With The Hackathon?: The Social Developer

For her senior project, Miranda developed the first in a series of short documentaries profiling the NYC tech community. In this documentary, she explored why companies and municipalities host hackathon events and what motivates hackers to compete in them.

Intramural League of Legends (IntraLoL)

When Anthony first arrived at NYU Engineering, he found out that many of his peers played competitive video games with one another, including League of Legends. He saw this as an opportunity to create a community around competition and learning. This league grew to a community of over 150 participants and had a Twitch following of over 5,000 page views. Matches were live streamed and casted every week on Sundays. His responsibilities included organizing players and staff, shout-casting games and creating content for the stream every week. In 2015, IntraLoL was recognized as the Best Digital Media Project at NYU Engineering.

Field Monitoring for MR Systems

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems use computer-controlled gradient magnetic fields to create the images; imperfections in the gradient performance can lead to artifacts in the images. The team has developed an MRI-friendly gradient magnetic field monitoring device. This device is placed inside the MRI system bore to measure magnetic gradient field’s strength. By using this device, it would be possible to precisely characterize the actual field pattern within the MRI system and help assess the causes of any magnetic field variations.

Silhouette

For his senior project, Jamique created a video project using RGBD, a Depthkit filmmaking tool. RGBD combines the languages of photography and data visualization. This hybrid video format allows for a storytelling medium that is digitally synthesized and photo real. First, a recording application allows the user to calibrate a high-definition video camera to the depth sensor, allowing their data streams to be merged. Secondly, a visualization application allows for viewing the combined footage and applying different 3D rendering styles, camera moves, and exporting sequences.

Lightbulb

The team created an idea repository to democratically collaborate and build ideas remotely in real-time. A visualization application allows for viewing the combined footage and applying different 3-D rendering styles, camera moves, and exporting sequences.
